    New Detonator FX 44.03 released

    NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, today released the NVIDIA® Detonator™ FX unified drivers for the Company’s award-winning line of desktop, mobile, and workstation graphics processing units (GPUs). The NVIDIA Detonator FX is based on the Company’s world-renowned Unified Driver Architecture (UDA)—the industry’s only true binary-compatible software architecture. This architecture is built to ensure software compatibility and stability, enabling the industry’s most reliable graphics platform.

    The NVIDIA Detonator FX drivers deliver significant performance increases and improved image quality, and provide a robust suite of software applications designed to extend and enhance the visual computing experience. Detonator FX provides up to a 30% increase in 3D graphics performance in real-world gaming benchmarks, and works with the entire line of NVIDIA GPUs— from the brand new GeForce™ FX GPUs, all the way back to the five-year-old TNT™ GPUs.

    Along with the increase in rendering performance, Detonator FX delivers improved anisotropic filtering, taking NVIDIA GPUs to new and unmatched levels of image quality. Based on feedback received from industry pundits, NVIDIA’s driver software algorithms deliver crisper, sharper textures, and more vibrant pictures.

    Tried them on 3DMark 2001 SE, no change in scores. Will try 03 later on and see the effect.

    Honestly,
    I've given the boot to the benchmarks.. I think they are a load of crap.. I will discover how well they work, if they support Nview, apply the color settings as they are supposed to, and work well with the games that I play, (no tearing and artifacts) then I will use them. If not I am going back to the previous driver..

    i'm using an ati 9000 pro and i have absolutely stopped benchmarking.

    when i used my gts i would do it every week

    now i just don't care about the speed and only care about the picture quality in the games.

    with ati it is as if the game makers never used ati and we are stuck with some tearing etc on some games

    anyways, off topic

    I am hookup my 1.4gig athalon and see how the gts is with these drivers.

    i am using a p4 1.7gig with ati as main computer

    Saw that too, everyone seems to be pro-ATI and anti-Nvidia nowadays.
